In tribute of the 50th anniversary celebration of Ford’s most iconic and recognized brand, the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang GT will lead the field to green in Sunday’s Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway.
Joe Hinrichs, Ford Motor Company president of the Americas, will do the honors behind the wheel of the new Mustang GT fastback to start the race.
The sixth generation rear-wheel drive Mustang, built in Flat Rock, Michigan boasts many of the iconic features that Ford and Mustang fans have come to recognize over the years, such as the long hoods and low, wide stance. It also features a sleek, 21st Century design with state-of-the-art technology.
“Ford is very proud to have the 2015 Mustang GT pace the Quicken Loans 400 this Sunday,” Chantel Lenard, U.S. Marketing Director of Ford Motor Company said. “With its proximity to the Motor City, Michigan International Speedway is a showcase for the auto industry. To have Mustang — a brand born of racing — in this special anniversary year, leading some of the world’s best drivers to the green flag, is special. We know our fans will enjoy seeing it out on the track.”
